1. Skipping breakfast. You wouldn’t send your kids off to school with an empty tank. Why would you start your day without any energy? We know you’re on the run trying to get everyone out the door in the morning but smoothies, protein bars, yogurt, fruit, a whole-grain waffle all are easy options and will keep you going.
2. Thinking you have no time. If you think it, you’re right. If you keep telling yourself you don’t have enough time in the day you’ll never have it. Change the way you talk to yourself about time and you’ll find time will start working in your favor.
3. Surfing the Internet. If you work at the computer or find yourself at the computer for hours in a day, be sure to take a break every 10 to 15 minutes. A little break will help break that online trance.
4. Starting the day without a plan. Write down your daily goals the night before. Waking up with a clear idea of what needs to happen in the day will help you get more accomplished.
5. Grocery shopping and running errands without a list. Writing lists and keeping them with you will help you save time and money
